Grandpa has to quiz the children to make sure they know the meaning of Independence Day, why it was so important. Why we want freedom. Do we understand the difference between the British monarchy and our Democracy.

WE returned home by 9pm. Then watched fireworks from our neighbors. We could also see some of the ones sponsored by Presbyterian Hospital Downtown at the Memorial Stadium(Grady Cole Center).

We retired to bed way to late for my taste.

It was a fun day nevertheless.
